Desecrated Tomb Discussion

Thanks for the upvote and the suggestions!
Yeah Zombie Infestation is definitely one of my favorites.
At first, I was skeptical about the Syr Konrad, the Grim idea, because it seemed to be doing exactly what our combo was doing, and I didn't want to use up another card slot for another Altar of Dementia , but after some thought, I'm starting to reconsider. Maybe Konrad doesn't need a combo to be deadly. I'm picturing a scenario with Konrad on the battlefield, and then resolving a Living Death . Or even just drawing a whole bunch of cards, then discarding a whole bunch of creatures. It'll be something interesting to try out.
I put Desecrated Tomb into my Marchesa, the Black Rose deck, and it did really well, but I don't think it'll do too well in Hogaak's case. In general, I try to stray away from exiling creatures from my graveyard, but even if I did start exiling them, I don't picture myself getting that many bats....
I've never been too much into the token build. I usually don't need a whole bunch of tokens to replay Hogaak, though there are a couple times when I'm short on creatures. I don't think I'll need the Plague of Vermin or the Spontaneous Generation if I'm being honest.
I feel like for each person who makes this deck, they have to make the decision between Hermit Druid and Traverse the Outlands . I personally think I'm fine without the Hermit, so that's why I don't include it and have the Traverse instead.
Now Cadaverous Bloom .... Wow. Just wow. I think this card is busted, and I'm surprised that this is the first time I've ever heard of it. I know it exiles, but that's a small enough price to pay when you're drawing 8 cards a turn. A definite include.
I think I've put in and taken out Skirge Familiar twice now. It's good, but sometimes I need to replace it with some better stuff. For example, that Cadaverous Bloom you just mentioned! If I have the space, I'll add it in.
I think Living Death is enough. I don't particularly need a whole bunch of mass recursion.
Again, thanks for the suggestions! I know I'm rejecting a whole lot of them, but I'd rather stay honest, than give people my false opinions. But that doesn't mean people shouldn't give me a whole bunch of suggestions; the more the merrier!

Great list +1
I'm building Hogaak this week and I'm excited to finally play Zombie Infestation .
How would you rate the following in Hogaak?
Cadaverous Bloom ...for the combo turns?

I always feel I'm a little low on single target removal in most of my decks so I'm a little hesitant to drop down on Go for the Throat , so that might stay in there for a while.
I really like the inclusion of Dread Presence as well, but I feel if I would want to play him, I'd want to throw in Burnished Hart and Solemn Simulacrum as well, which would bring me back up the ones I just cut haha.

My thought is that you'll have the easiest time finding things to cut under 'utility'. I'd probably try going without Sorin Markov but YMMV here. Deathgreeter is super inexpensive but just dinks and dunks life and you should be draining decently with your aristocrat cards and Disciple. You could probably lose one of Bitterblossom , Dreadhorde Invasion or Desecrated Tomb
Your weakest targeted removal spell is probably Go for the Throat due to targeting restrictions. Not sure if you're comfortable going down one in this category though.
Dread Presence could take the place of say Dark Prophecy and Vindictive Vampire as it can swap back and forth between modes as needed. It can also act as some additional removal as the 2 damage is to any target. Hard to get multiple land drops without a dedicated 'lands matter' theme but the Hart can get you there or something like Myriad Landscape .
Overall, not a list with easy cuts as everything looks useful to the deck. +1 incoming.

I highly recommend Desecrated Tomb , since it lets you draw significant amounts of cards when you have your undying cards out.
